158: Interviewing for Customer Service Rockstars

Have you ever met someone whose mere presence lights up the room?

That’s the kind of person Dave Murray and John believe can revolutionize the customer experience. On this episode of The Customer Service Revolution, join us as we dive into the essence of the “Employee Experience Revolution” and how happiness and attitude play a pivotal role in enhancing the customer journey. It’s not just about the skills on a resume. It’s the natural inclination to serve that makes a difference. We’re sharing personal stories and practical interview tips to help you identify these qualities during your hiring process.

Imagine your company filled with employees who understand the power of being a “CEO of the moment”—individuals who take charge of every customer interaction with empathy and genuine care. Our conversation turns to the innovative world of interviewing techniques, where we share strategies to find those unique candidates who will fit your culture and propel it forward. We’ve even included a chapter that unpacks crafting customer experience interview questions that can reveal the nature of a candidate’s service attitude.

Ultimately, it’s about fostering an environment where employees can lead extraordinary lives, both personally and professionally. With Dave’s insights and collective wisdom, we explore the impact of nurturing a workspace that values growth and fulfillment.

Prepare to transform your team into ambassadors of customer experiences. We’re on a mission to enrich lives—one customer, one employee at a time.
